I thought this was a good value compared to other hotels in the area. The hotel was subpar with normal amenities missing. No breakfast was offered so we would have been better off staying in a hotel with breakfast included even if it was just a light breakfast. The bed was terribly hard and uncomfortable and they only offered queen sized beds. We had no use for the kitchenette so it was a waste of money. I will never book a room at a Candlewood again. No

When I checked in, I was greeted with a smile and very helpful service. The front attendant even asked floor preference which I found very considerate. All the amenities you need like laundry and a kitchen to cook in case you felt like it but otherwise close by restaurants available too. I would stay here again.

No ironing board in the room or completely breakfast. Adding this would make a big difference.

Our overall 2 night stay was wonderful. It was about less than 5 minutes drive to Starbucks (Must have caffeine). Abput 10 minutes local drive to a Tesla Superchargers. Super close to other fast food eateries. Front desk personnel was nice and she was very hard worker. Easy location for on and off freeways.
